comment How to avoid knee injury?
Agree with all, but this answer would be better with information on "Starting Strength" or at least where to find that information.

comment Defending against an aggressive and heavier opponent
In your "optimal training" scenario, why would you focus on open-palm jabs as opposed to fists?

comment Defending against an aggressive and heavier opponent
Are we assuming that neither retreat nor de-escalation are options? And are we assuming that neither side is armed, even with improvised weapons?

comment Why Do Pressure Points Work Differently Against Different People?
While the contribution is definitely appreciated, an anecdote without more does not really supply an answer. This anecdote doesn't even really seem to address the question of "why".

comment Best karate book
As written, the question is both opinion based and too broad, but I suspect it could be refined to be better if the asker narrows down exactly what he is looking for. There was a meta discussion related to this here: meta.martialarts.stackexchange.com/questions/75/…

comment Martial Arts Weapons for Home Defense?
Interesting choice. But it is worth noting that a weapon like this is potentially lethal and outside the movies getting a high probability of knockout without a high probability of killing/long-term-injury is very hard. And what you will get arrested for is a bit more nuanced than that. I am not an expert and join @sardathrion in recommending consulting an experienced attorney, but it is possible to be justified in stabbing someone and possible to get arrested for hitting someone with a Sap.

comment What are the benefits of learning weapons?
I actually don't think it changes my answer much. If the art in question deliberately ties in the armed and unarmed techniques together (Eskrima/Kali does this) then the crossovers will be obvious and explicitly taught. Otherwise, training with weapons is cross-training (even if under the same umbrella of style) with all the benefits of cross-training but probably not overly much else.

comment Which kind of breath provides the most striking power?
Interesting answer, though I think some of the terms need to be cleared up. I think you are using the definition of work for power, and I don't think surface tension is the phrase you want.
